You Rock! I Rock! We All Rock! Race Report!





How did this pathetic but CREATIVE (gotta give me that) attempt to keep myself in this race to the finish come about? Well, after yesterday's post (which hardly anyone saw because of the time that I posted it), I woke up ready to make the most of this time we have! And sorry if my post made some of you sad...just something heavy on my heart and that I needed to hear at the time.  I truly believe that we write what we need to know.  And your comments on that post were of such value to me! So, this morning I tried to be in the present with my family and make some fun "kid messes" that are oh so popular!


It started with a little sidewalk painting and then we decided to do a little rock art.  We thought it would be fun to make some pet rocks.  Started out like this:





And then the competitive side of me starting thinking about how this whole Circle of Moms thing has all gotten a little silly but FUN!  I know it really isn't even about the individual blogs anymore but really about how everybody is WORKIN' IT!  This means begging, annoying, cheering, convincing and persuading all our friends and family for votes.  I'm sure they, and you, are all ready to tell Circle of Moms where they can shove it.  But stick with me. This is a race of sorts...most of you should "get" that concept. The competitor in me, the part of Runninghood that represents being the best you you can be and never giving up, the part of me that hates to lose but loves to win....this part is taking over my brain.  Ha!  It really is an online video game now.  So that is where this idea came from (and my kids enjoyed it as much as me so it was a win win win playing/creating experience):



The Current Line Up for Top 11 (When I did this).  Sorry SUAR, your flag is messed up.

The Leading Pack.  The Front Runners.  The Big Rollers.  

Fighting for mid-pack!  

Don't forget the underdogs that started WAY later than some of these  leaders!  Days later really.  Smaller in followers but fierce in nature.!

This race report was brought to you by RunninghoodRocks.com.  I'll be giving you a rock by rock update as the competition heats up! (not really, don't worry).  For now, I'm off on my 13 mile run a little late.  Last mid to long run until the big marathon day!  


Remember, YOU ROCK! I ROCK!  WE ALL ROCK!  But Vote RunninghoodROCKS!


To be continued......
